Dried Longan

Longan is a wonderful and delicious tonic fruit used by the Chinese as a blood tonic, to nurture the heart, and to add luster and beauty to the skin. It is believed among the Chinese people that Longan is not only a great tonic for the skin, but is also a fantastic sex tonic. For that reason, Longan is considered as a special tonic for women who wish to be both beautiful and sexually active.

Longan is an excellent Blood and Qi tonic that can be used to relieve heart palpitation, insomnia, forgetfulness and anxiety associated with Blood and Qi deficiency, especially when combined with Qi tonics such as Ginseng, Codonopsis and Astragalus. It is one of the premier blood tonics of Chinese tonic herbalism, and is often combined with other blood tonics such as Dong Gui and Peony to build blood. Dragon Eye Fruit has a high content of iron, about 20 times that of grapes and 15 times that of spinach.

Combined with Shen tonic herbs such as Ganoderma and Fu Shen, it promotes tranquillity.


To nourish the Blood, calm the mind, strengthen the Spleen and tonify Qi.


This herb has been found to promote deep, refreshing sleep. For this purpose, it may be combined with Zizyphus. It increases physical stamina and promotes peripheral circulation, warming up cold hands and feet.
